How Every Project Begins

Send images of your project to us, along with budget, main goals, information about what is and is not working in your space and anything else you would like to share. Once the payment is received, it’s time to book your two hour appointment. A week before our appointment, we will complete a full review of the information you sent our way. When the two-hour clock starts we roll up our sleeves and get to work. Our goal is to provide as much value as possible in the two hours we are in your space, so every minute counts. Once the two hours are completed, we will create an outline of ideas and notes based on the discussions and decisions made during our meeting and send it to you within 48 hours.​

From Here You Choose Your Own Design Adventure


We provide you with a guideline so you can tackle some of the most important design to-dos on your list. We may not cover everything in the two hours we are together, but we will make decisions and observations that help you take your project to the next level.


This adventure is for clients who would like us to put the design into motion or for clients who have complex or large projects and need the help of an experienced interior designer. We include the design guideline we create into your client binder and send you a Letter of Agreement to sign along with a welcome pack that includes information about our full service design process. Once we receive the Letter of Agreement and retainer, we jump in with both feet and get started right away.

Addicted to Her Enthusiasm

“Sara was able to capture the look and feel we were looking for but to an elevated degree. She has an extraordinary design vision that pushed us out of our comfort zone and introduced us to a new twist on traditional design that I had no idea we were craving. We did a full home renovation with Sara Ford Design and it was beyond anything we had anticipated.

We have worked with many designers in the past and we finally found someone we not only trusted completely, but she has wowed us with her natural ability to pull all the details together in a way we would never have thought of.

Her positive and fun attitude really made this large renovation process an enjoyable experience. We are addicted to her enthusiasm and passion for design so we recently hired her to do the renovation of our beach house as well. We cannot wait to see what she comes up with! If you are looking for a true interior design professional, you have found her!”
